Map of Towne Linda

Towne Linda is a town on Earth in the year 1423 B.C. It exists within the alternate time line created by Minax's interventions in Ultima II.

Description[edit]

Linda was a European settlement in the 15th century B.C. and seemingly under the dominion of Lord British, given the prominence with which his initials were displayed in the fountain at the center of town. Linda had modest commercial offerings, and had vendors for armaments and transport, as well a pub. A prostitute, name Ithilian, could also be found advertising her wares.[1]

Curiously enough, Linda had an inhabitant purporting to know about small computers—evidence of the anachronistic mixing of technology that transpired with the advent of the time doors.[2]

When Minax was defeated, Linda also disappeared.

Trivia[edit]

  • Richard Garriott's younger sister, Linda, lends her name to this city.[5]
  • Another pub called Pub de Varg could be found in Britain during Ultima I.
  • Linda appears in what would have been the territory of the archaic Aurunci people of Italy.
